Cultural practices to reduce salinity/sodium damage of rabbiteye blueberry plants (Vaccinium ashei Reade)



Cultural practices to reduce salinity/sodium damage of rabbiteye blueberry plants (Vaccinium ashei Reade)



Acta Horticulturae ( 241): 207-212



Blueberries are very sensitive to irrigation water which contains high salt, HCO3, or sodium levels. A series of experiments was conducted to determine cultural practices that would maximize plant performance with poor quality irrigation water. Cultivars Delite and Brightwell were more salt tolerant than Tifblue, Premier and Climax. Irrigation water (EC 0.7 dS/m, pH 8.7, SAR 30) which had been modified by the addition of gypsum or acid, did not improve plant performance.
